    Pros

    If you're on a good team/department you'll find the following is true:
    - Great opportunities to learn and grow your career
    - Highly successful, innovative and organized teams
    - Excellent benefits, perks and incentives for those who work hard
    - Incredibly talented and gracious professionals to work with
    - Flexible work schedules/styles; working remotely is common and little micro-managing

    Cons

    - Transparency is still an issue between HR/executives and general employees
    - Some rules don't apply to all employees across the board

    Advice to Management

    Be open and honest with your team. They don't mind hearing the truth even if it isn't positive.

    Pros

    Young company, many opportunities for advancement, personable management

    Cons

    New management, increased responsibility without increased pay, had to help the company grow in the US from the first day (not necessarily a bad thing to me. I enjoyed it.)

    Pros

    Always new experiences and learning. Lots of room for creativity and growth. It's safe to fail ...and try again. I love that I can work from home - remotely! What a gift ��

    Cons

    No complaints that can't be negotiated. Pace is fast so you need to embrace ambiguity and if you can do that - all is well. Check us out!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Great vision and corporate ethics. Promotion opportunities without a degree abound for those that display initiative.

    Cons

    Some areas aren't well managed. Utilize resource groups and networking to move around if you can.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to the strategy and respect your team. If the whole team feels they have a role and are important and valued, everyone wins!

    Pros

    As long as you are in CORPORATE store you will make a lot a commission money. Total salary range for a part-timer (approx 20hours/week) goes from 20k to 38k depending on your sales skills and the store sales volume. Benefits are great, you get a free smartphone + insurance.

    Cons

    Do not accept, under any circonstances, to work for a TELUS dealer (a non-corporate store), you will have to work twice as hard as in a corporate store but for half the salary and no benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Try to find a way to keep your good part-time employees once they finish their degrees. I had to leave TELUS who i consider the best employer in Canada because they wouldnt even consider me for a finance-side job.
